The Nutritionist Reviews: Dachshund Skin Issue Update -->

Dachshund Skin Issue Update

About a month ago, I had blogged about my 2 year old dachshund Ava who is having skin problems.  She has black dots all over her chest that I was very worried about.
Back in December, I took her to a different vet for the 4th time. This time, I actually got some really valuable information. The vet told me that her cell's melanocytes (pigment) are enlarged and she has a reaction which is not dangerous.  He was not worried about the dots even though there seemed to be a lot of them.  He said besides the dots, she is a very healthy dog and her fur looks good and her weight was fine too.  He said that we only need to worry if she gains a lot of weight at once or if her ears start scabbing.  The vet is a pet dermatology specialist and knew tons of information about different dachshund skin conditions. 

I wanted to update all of you about it since I had blogged about it and many of you gave me some tips and did research on what it may be. I am so thankful to have found a smart vet who was up to date on different skin conditions and could give me so much info about Ava! She is a happy, healthy, and playful little dog.
